In addition, the site hosts a summary of the latest UK guidance in relation to the use of cone beam computed tomography CBCT equipment for dental practitioners.

He worked in the Unit of Dental Radiology at Guy’s Hospital for seven years fromfirstly as a specialist registrar and then as a lecturer. Cone beam computed tomography CBCT A black, white and grey shadowgraph is a form of non-clinical example is shown in Figure 1.

The book is well laid out, with each chapter starting with the basics before moving on to more complex areas. Factors affecting the radiographic image, film faults and quality assurance Part 1 Introduction X-rays are capable of producing ionization and subsequent biological damage in living tissue, see Ch.

Contents Foreword ix It has confirmed that its qualities had been appreciated. To expect one where a particular internal structure lies, or to its radiograph to provide allthe required information shape, as shown in Figure 1.


When the surrounding square is black, the observer perceives the inner square to be very pale, while when the surrounding square is light grey, the observer perceives the inner square to be dark. My thanks also to the many col- In particular I would like to thank the members leagues and essential who provided comments of staff in my Department both past and present.


These figures this variation are kV of equipment used, shape and are useful to remember when considering the size of beam, speed of film used and the tissues magnitude of the doses associated with various included in the calculations. These include a mixture of single best answer and multiple correct answer questions, drag and drop identification of radiological anatomy as well as new examples of various pathological conditions to enable practice of diagnostic skills.
